Freeform announced my favorite comedy series “Young & Hungry” will return for its final season on Wednesday, June 20 at 8:00 PM EDT/PDT. I have been a huge fan of this show every since I had the privilege of interviewing the entire cast at a breakfast several years ago in LA!
The final season (5B) sees Gabi and Josh finally together and in love, but now navigating their new status as a full-fledged couple. Meanwhile, the rest of Josh’s staff, Yolanda and Elliot, are grappling with the change in work dynamic with Gabi as the “woman of the house.” Sofia, Gabi’s best friend, who begins to feel like a third wheel with the new couple, sets out on her own path to find love.
Additionally, Freeform has ordered into development a “Young & Hungry” movie, from the same series creative team including David Holden, Caryn Lucas, Ashley Tisdale, and Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, that will further the adventures of Gabi, Josh and their circle of friends.
And I love sharing my picture taken with all the wonderful people involved with this show, except we missed the very talented Kym Whitley!
This has been one of my favorite shows on Freeform. I was lucky enough to be on a Disney TV and Movie press junket when the show was in its infancy and I met the cast. I fell in love with the show right away, and through five seasons have found it to be freshly written and and always funny. As much sexual tension as there has been with the characters of Josh and Gabi, their story lines never got old and their relationship mishaps were always comedic and never boring. I credit a terrific writing staff for being able to keep that story interesting!
